Something must have changed in cvs (maybe big dvb patch?) that affects how
mpeg2 files from my dvb-c card are created.

Previously i was able to play mpeg2 nuv files just fine in windows, but now
it is not posibel to open the file at all in most mediaplayers.
If i run the file thru replex the resulting file plays just fine.
(vlc can play it even before running replex, but without audio)

Have something changed that coud have caused this?
If i examine the file before and after running replex i can see that they
start differently, before "00 00 01 E0 07" and after running replex it
starts with "00 00 01 BA 44"
I don't know if that have anything to do with it or not.

But i do know that one way that windows uses to identify the file as
mpeg2-ps is to read the fist 5 bytes, bitwise and with FFFFFFFFC0 and then
check if it's 000001BA40
So it makes sense that it can't recognize the file, don't know it that
matters or not.

It woud be nice to not have to run every recording thru replex to make it
